BRQL doc update : v1.55 for F2F

From: Seaborne, Andy <andy.seaborne@hp.com>
Date: Tue, 07 Sep 2004 14:04:29 +0100
Message-ID: <413DB1DD.7050301@hp.com>
To: RDF Data Access Working Group <public-rdf-dawg@w3.org>

I've checked in v1.55 as the baseline document content for the 
face-to-face meeting next week.

One renaming: FROM section was section 6 is now section 8.

Sections 2-7 define graph patterns
Sections 2,3,4,5 are done 6 (Disjunction) and 7 (Unsaid) aren't
   and need to be be added to complete the graph patterns

Section 8 "Choosing what to query" is what was section 6
   It's DaveB's text.
   Moving it out of the pattern section seems to work better
   and put FROM and SOURCE near each other.

Section 9 is SOURCE
   It currently has two sets of text and needs to be merged

Section 10 will be a summary of patterns

Section 11 is the query forms: SELECT/CONSTRUCT/DESCRIBE/ASK
   Sec 11 has the old text from the original description.
   The SELECT section now includes LIMIT and DISTINCT

Section 12 isn't done at all
   12.1 will be the subset of standard XQuery/XPath Functions and
        Operators every implementation must support
   12.2 is the extension point for value testing by
        externally defined boolean-valued functions

in Firefox)
